Afghanistan refugees in Northern California will be given new kitchen supplies gathered with the help of Church members and other partners working together through JustServe.
When the refugees arrive in the Tri-Valley area, which is the East Bay region of California’s Bay Area, they will be set up with all the cooking, baking and dining supplies needed for their new homes. These kitchen kits include brand-new items purchased and assembled by the volunteers.
The International Rescue Committee put out a call for 50 kitchen kits in October, and the Tri-Valley community responded in a huge way.
Organizers created a new project on JustServe.org, with an Amazon wish list for things like frying pans, pots, knife sets, utensils and more. On the first day, 115 items were purchased, and in only five days, all 500 items were ordered to make the 50 kitchen kits. So, organizers increased the number of items to see if they could get to 70 kitchen kits. In just one week, they met their goal. A total of 700 items was purchased, equaling a value of more than $11,000.
